Do you mean the new movie or the old movie -- I've not seen the old one, but if you mean the new one, I must dispute that oft-heard claim.

If it was really meant to mean "America is doing great", then the film wouldn't have portrayed the Greek religion as corrupt, worthless, and a hinderance.

Also, why change Xerxes from MiddleEastern-looking to African-looking, if not to deliberately try and avoid (rather than encourage) this sort of accusation?

it's jingoism is painted in broad strokes and is quite obvious.

Also many of the Persians killed were middle-eastern.

Well, if you insist. Perhaps I was to busy enjoying myself to notice.
